Heating and Ventilation
Vent-Axia, the market-leading British ventilation manufacturer, is delighted to have been named in the UK Business Superbrand list for 2019. The award follows robust independent research commissioned by The Centre for Brand Analysis (TCBA), which identifies the UK’s Superbrands in an annual league table. The ranking, which has been tracking the UK’s leading business-to-business (B2B) brands since 2001, recognises the company for quality, reliability and distinction.
The UK Business Superbrand is considered the Business-to-Business brand barometer. The annual Business Superbrand survey involves voting undertaken by marketing experts and business professionals. Brands do not apply or pay to be considered; rather an extensive database of UK brands is compiled using a wide range of sources from sector reports to industry league tables.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recently issued draft guidelines relating to Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) which will be of particular interest to UK social housing landlords. In the consultation document NICE encourages landlords to be aware of the air quality in their residents’ homes, a subject that is becoming an increasingly vital issue in the UK. The final NICE document is scheduled for publication in December but the need for improved IAQ in the home is clear.
